Booking accommodation

Scholarship participants

The SUN Office will book accommodation for scholarship participants in the CEU Residence Center, a modern, air-conditioned hostel about a 40-45-minute ride (bus+metro) away from CEU’s teaching site.
The booking will be made for default dates (arrival: one day before the course starts, departure: the day after the course finishes).
An accommodation grant (including breakfast) covers housing expenses in a single or shared double room (with two single beds or a bunk bed) with a bathroom, (depending on the type of awarded grant) only for the course period, and can only be used in the hotel designated for the course.

All modification requests will be handled by the Residence Center staff

Self-funded participants

We will provide a link to the Housing Form after the notification of acceptance where you can indicate your preference. 

In case a self-funded participant reserves their accommodation through the Housing form, The Residence staff will send a booking confirmation.
